Helping you make better decisions.
Get to Know Dean Frieders
Contracts and regulations are written by lawyers, who then charge you by the minute to explain them--it's not fair. I became a lawyer because my family learned firsthand what happens when you don't get good legal advice. Our family farm, pictured here, was sold to pay the inheritance taxes when my great grandparents died--an avoidable tragedy. I started my practice to help clients who, like me, don't want to spend money unnecessarily, but who do need periodic help to make informed, practical decisions.
Large or small, I can make your project a success.
